There is so much choice when it comes to choosing a fly repellent for your horse. With lots of factors to consider we give you a quick rundown on what to look for when buying a fly repellent. Take the time to research your options, and you’ll find the right fly repellent to keep your horse comfortable and protected all summer long.

  • Research ingredients – Look for a fly repellent with ingredients know to effectively deter flies such as Citronella and DEET.
  • Trial and observation – Once you pick a repellent, always do a patch test on a small area of your horse skin to check for any reactions. Observe how effectively it repels flies and whether it provides the protection you require.
  • Research additional benefits – Some fly products offer additional benefits such as being water based which reduces the risk of sunburn or added coat conditioners to give your horses coat that extra shine and condition in the dry/hot weather.
  • Consider application methods – Fly repellents come in various forms including sprays and gels. Choose a method that is convenient for you and your horse. Some horses are sensitive to sprays or dislike the sensation, so opt for an alternative application such as a gel.
  • Read Reviews – Look for reviews from other horse owners who have used the product or ask your local tack shop for advice.
